I'm not hater, just a legit bug to report.
Running Win XP SP3, never had no issues with any other SolidCoin client.
First time I have run SC in a few days, Downloaded the new client...1.03
When the block chain downloads it hangs on increments of 500.
Deleted everything except wallet and .conf, reinstalled, same prob every 500 blocks.
Have to close and restart Solidcoin.
The BitCoin client does the exact same thing on a fast computer with a fast connection. There seems to be some rate limiting in there somewhere.
Just wait it out. I think this is a feature not a bug.
